sandy, the superstorm, wait it hit new york new jersey that put it back on the map. it wasn't talked about by either candidate in the last round. i was totally thrilled, not just that, he spoke to every stripe in his rainbow coalition, historic statement with regard to lesbians, gays, the entire, new emerging majority. all of that i think is in jeopardy if we don't do anything about climate change. he can do a lot of things with executive orders, the existing coal plants could be made more clean with executive authority. also he should do a bilateral with the leadership of china. china's having a horrible environmental crisis, air quality's going down. an opportunity for both superpowers to sit down. the president's unleashed, unchained, willing to speak from his heart. you'll see a very different second term. >> anna, you're always unleashed and unchained, anna. you are never a wallflower about any of these things. talk about the tone here because fellow republicans not happy about it. they didn't think it was genuine reaching across the group. they called it, quote, a harshly ideol

. >> after snowstorm sandy. and being together and working together, republican and democrat. you asked, what i have liked to have more of in the inauguration address, it would have been the spirit that you saw with christie and obama. and i like the fact that after that, republicans, instead of being peeved at him, oh, my gosh, you helped o o eed out th guy, they liked it -- >> well, they were forced. >> i think the most important speech that chris christie has given was at the reagan library, where he talked about compromise and leadership. and he said, that's the way -- it's not complicated, how you get things done. you get things done through compromise and leadership. and compromise has been a totally dirty word inside the republican party here. >> it's strange. something's wrong. >> if you can keep that theme going, it's very important. >> does it begin anew tomorrow. wrap it up with your thoughts on the rnc meeting tomorrow. >> like i said, we want to be successful. and i feel like what you've seen out of the republicans over the last couple of days is a much smarter approach, to focus
